Middle ILoI dated 2013-06-07

Unto Rouge Scarpe, Dragon and the commenting population of the Midrealm and the SCA, does the Escutcheon Herald send greetings on this the 7th day of June, in the 48th year of our Society (2013).


Here you will find the submissions that I have received this past month of May, submitted for your commentary. All comments will be due one month from today, on the 7th of July.

1: Ahelissa de Limington -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2001, via the Middle

2: Anneka Dubrovskaia -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2012, via Calontir

Vert, on a chevron inverted sable fimbriated three acorns and in base two squirrels combatant argent.

Initially submitted in Calontir, and returned April 2012 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/04/12-04lar.html)

"CALONTIR

Anneka Dubrovskaia. Device.

Vert, on a chevron inverted sable fimbriated three acorns and in base two squirrels combatant argent.

This device is returned for a redraw, for violating the guidelines set forth on the May 2011 Cover Letter for a properly drawn chevron inverted; the chevron inverted here is too high on the field. While a chevron inverted may move upwards to accomodate charges placed below it, it should still be clearly the sole primary charge and not give the forbidden appearance of being in a primary charge group comprised of an ordinary and other charges. Please see that Cover Letter for further discussion and details of how to properly draw a chevron inverted."
